Review snapshots:   Sue Sutherland Bride • Wedding Date: October 11, 2020 Sean was empathetic, funny, kind and most of all, highly organised. He has a special gift in his dealing with people. He had our guests eating out of his hand.
Letitia Mareko Bride • Wedding November 2020 Sean is an amazing man, and has a great sense of humour! We met a couple of times, but it felt as though we had known him for years. He was extremely helpful on the lead up to the wedding, he made things so easy for us and helped make things run so smoothly on the day. He also has it all handy - readings, poems, vow examples, it was great! Thank you so much Sean. We are both so grateful for your service.

Sean was so easy to work with right from the first email. Our first meeting was conveniently over facetime where we chatted and got to know each other. Each meeting with there after was effortless. Our ceremony was just perfect, although the weather is not. our ceremony is on top of the mountain - sign of Bellbird, that’s an extremely cold and windy morning. Thanks to his profession, Everyone said it was the special ceremony they had been. We highly recommend him if your after working with someone who feels like a friend right from the get go! Cheers to Sean The Celebrant an absolute legend!

I could say that Sean is very professional. We are lucky to have him as our wedding officiant. He really knows what he is doing and is very helpful in processing our marriage ceremony and documents. During the ceremony, he was funny and very interactive with our guests. Indeed, I highly recommend him as a wedding officiant.

I can only give a full 5 stars for everything to do with Sean Joyce. When we chose to do our small registry wedding I worried about 1. not meeting the celebrant first and 2. it not being all that special considering we couldn’t write our own vows or anything like that due to the nature of a ‘registry office’ wedding. Well, how wrong was I!!

We decided to get married at the Harbour House Cafe in governors bay which was a beautiful spot and thought over coffee and cake would be perfect. When Sean arrived he was so professional, enthusiastic and funny that we felt completely at ease. We ended up arranging the furniture in the cafe so we could stand by the beautiful view in the window and Sean made a show of it so it really did feel special even though I expected it to be all boring paperwork!

I’ve even had a couple of messages since then to say that a couple of my friends are going to be using Sean purely because they saw him at one of THEIR friends wedding and thought they must get him.

I could not be more pleased with how special our day turned out to be. Thank you for everything!

We found Sean to be very organised and friendly. He responded to our emails promptly, and was very thorough at checking the legal documents to make sure everything was well prepared. We wanted a simple and private wedding, and Sean helped make this a reality with his professionalism and a sense of humour. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

There is no other word to describe Sean than perfect. He was wonderful from start to finish. He kept us updated with what we needed to be doing without being annoying and provided us with helpful information along the way. On our special day everyone loved him. He involved our guests in the ceremony and had us all at ease. This is the guy for the job! Thank you so so much Sean. You really made the ceremony better than i could have imagined.

Sean officiated our small ceremony at our home. His humor and personality helped make our wedding feel very special yet casual (just what we wanted!). He was accommodating to our needs and very supportive of our situation as neither of our parents were able to attend (due to the ongoing COVID situation). We definitely recommend Sean as a celebrant, his friendly nature and professionalism will put you at ease on your most special day!

Sean worked with us to create the comfortable, low-key ceremony that we were wanting. With all of the changes to our plans through the turbulence of 2020, Sean supported us the whole way through and we couldn’t be happier with his guidance and professionalism.

All of our guests loved Sean, the best wedding they had ever been to!!
We only met with Sean twice before our special day, no pressure from him to have things we didnt want to. Relaxed and fun ceremony, with the “I do’s” thrown in at the right time

Sean was the best person we could possibly asked for that special day. He was kind, relieve, super helpful and on top of everything super funny. We had to livestream our wedding due to covid and he did not have a single problem with that or with having a microphone.

I was late, as a good bride should be, and he accompany my husband all the time while he waited.

He is super easy going and positive creating a gorgeous atmosphere. We were in the middle of the park, but his calm and soft voice helped us feel that we were the only ones there.

We don’t have enough words to describe how incredible he is and how much we recommend him to anyone who would like their wedding day to be unique and perfect.

Sean was our celebrant almost three weeks ago now! Sean was the first celebrant we had met with, and on meeting him we were 100% SOLD! We knew then and there he was the one for us!

Sean is an amazing man, and has a great sense of humour! We had only met a couple of times, but it felt as though we had known him for years. He was extremely helpful on the lead up to the wedding, he made things so easy for us and helped make things run so smoothly on the day. He also has it all handy - readings, poems, vow examples, it was great!

Thank you so much Sean! We are both so grateful for your service!
